We are well aware of the issues and concerns involved in using a sump pump. The realtors tell us all the time, having to use a pump, backup battery, dehumidifier and all the other unnecessary, expensive devices sold and used by the other companies. Often throw up red flags and alert buyers of possible problems and issues concerning water and moisture, making the sale of your home not as appealing to potential buyers. The cost to maintain, service and replace a sump pump doesn't ever stop. When a pump is used, the job is never paid in full, not including the electricity it will require to operate.
In the rare occasions where a sump pump is deemed necessary. We will only use Zoeller brand pumps, the most reliable, dependable pumps made. In cases where having to use a pump is unavoidable. Our installation experts are trained and educated in designing collection systems using back water valves, one way check valves, catch basins, sumps and pump wells in such a way that volume and flow to and from pump, and discharge lines are reduced greatly. The amount of times your pump cycles become less frequent, helping pumps to turn on less, thus lasting much longer and operating much more efficient.
